meeting with Deaf children.

Violetta Kirirov (64), a former teacher of the school for the deaf in Sofia, Bulgaria, visited the Prefecture School for the Deaf in Saga City on May 6. She has wanted to learn about the welfare and education in Japan.

She came to Japan for the first time. Her eldest son (39) is working on the industry-university joint research at Saga University.

She introduced the Bulgarian school for the Deaf with the photographs after visiting the elementary class, and presented all the children a bottle of the perfume of the rose from Bulgaria. The classroom was wrapped in a sweet smell like soap.

Violetta communicated with the children by sign language, learning the differences of two sign languages; Japanese and Bulgarian.

After the visit, she said with a smile, " It has been my dream to visit a school for the Deaf in Japan. There are a lot of discoveries which I indeed enjoyed".
